Also see . . . The Wreck Today. The Mosher lies badly broken and scattered on rock bottom. The stern is at a depth of about 15 feet with the bow remains sloping down to about 22 feet. Our attempts to locate this one have been thwarted because of poor (zero) visibility and the uneven rocky bottom. Old time divers have visited the area so we know that this wreck lies near the area reported. There is a great amount of boat traffic, and often large numbers of fishermen in this area which make searching the site difficult. In addition, be careful not to end up on any of the nearby reefs like the Amaretta Mosher. (Submitted on November 12, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
